I installed openstack icehouse in RHEL 6.3 by following the standard docs

I created a cinder volume and the status of the volume is 'available'

When I ran the command tgt-admin -s , there are no targets listed

The directory /etc/cinder/volumes is also empty.

Do I need any other configuration?

In Havana, a cinder volume is exported as soon as it is created. Did this behaviour change in Icehouse?

In my Icehouse env, available volumes aren't listed in /etc/cinder/volumes (but they do appear as LVs in the cinder-volume VG), they only get added when the volume is in-use. Same goes for tgt-admin -s, only "in-use" volumes are output.

@rgroten : I don't want to create any instances. Is there a way to force the status of a cinder volume from 'available' to 'in-use'?
